A Village Reborn
Four years ago the village of Llanaelhaearn (population 250), in North Wales, was dying. The slate quarries which had employed many villagers had closed, and young people were moving away to find work.
Carl Clowes , the new village doctor, arrived as the battle to save the village school began. Since then he has been the moving spirit behind a village co-operative society which has achieved some surprising results.

: Horizon

The McMaster Experiment
In one of the boldest educational experiments of our time a Canadian medical school has successfully abandoned exams, lectures, and given students the power to direct their own learning and even remove poor tutors. The aim in this case is to train better family doctors.
This dramatic cinema verite film follows medical students at McMaster University through a number of real and simulated medical problems. The students diagnose and treat road accident casualties in hospital emergency rooms, distraught and depressed housewives, and a brain damaged 25-year-old girl who is unaware of her true condition.
Tonight's Horizon shows how the McMaster experiment is challenging the basic ground rules of education by showing that lectures and exams are not necessary for effective learning. Narrator FRANK GILLARD

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
